What can I say! Excelent stay. My daughter, husband and myself stayed here during "Days on the Lawn" at UVA this past weekend. The University is a short 5-10 minute drive right down the street. Our stay here couldn't have been better! Our room was much larger than most hotels. It included a table and 2 chairs along with a... More

Have been staying at this property as a business traveler since 1989 - before and since it became a Holiday Inn. The latest renovation, completed early this year, has been well worth the wait. The lobby area is welcoming, spacious, with a big screen TV and fireplace to boot. Rooms are comfortable, freshly painted, with heating and cooling that get... More

Curtious and friendly staff willing to assist me in any way possible. Wonderful renovations, very clean and comfortable rooms. I stayed with a group of swimmers in town for a meet and the service at this hotel went above and beyond to meet our needs. Highly recommend this hotel and I (we) will definitely stay at this hotel again!

I recomend this hotel to everyone . I stay here frequently and I love it. Everyone is nice and courtious. The property is extremely clean, the location is great. I absolutely love this hotel and will stay here every time I am in the area. I can't say enough for the staff and the property itself.

Thank goodness i booked my room through Hotwire! I am sooo glad I did not pay the actual going rate for this hotel. Breakfast IS NOT included - you even have to pay for the Continental breakfast. The restaurant on-site, is not really a restaurant at all; just a half-a$$ed bar with some tables. (the "waitress" screwed up our orders... More

This hotel was top-notch, in my opinion. Plenty of parking. The front lobby was under construction, upon entering, but the smaller front desk was easy to find. The front-desk lady had our reservation already waiting for us, absolutey no waiting. The room was very spacious and had lots of amenities, microwave, fridge, etc.. Plenty of towels and washclothes. Pillows and... More

We booked on priceline as 3 star. It was not even a 1 star and felt unsafe. Got in late, there were men standing outside that stared us up and down, who were smoking and from beer cans saw inside later, probably drinking. We think people used as hang out for bus stop. Not a good start. No real lobby... More

Stayed here for a night while visiting Charlottesville/Jamestown. Didn't spend much time in the room except for showering and sleeping. Good internet access and convenient location!

This semed to be an older property. There were a few steps leading up to the lobby.....luggage wheels won't be much help to you there. Our room on the top floor was clean, updated and more than adequate. No problems with our room itself, but the walls separating us from other rooms were thin. Sound traveled easily from one room...
